Bennett set to address UN General Assembly today

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is set to address the 76th UN General Assembly in New York in a few hours, his first speech on the last day of this year’s forum of world leaders.

He will speak at 9 a.m. local time (4 p.m. Israel time).

According to a senior adviser, Bennett will seek to portray Israel as a global player whose expertise can offer solutions to pressing world problems.

The speech will tout Bennett’s approach to battling COVID-19, call for action against Iran’s nuclear program, hail Israel’s normalization deals with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, and will not focus on the Palestinian issue.
